Ledger of debtors and creditors of Andrea di Lorenzo Amadori for the years 1528-1537. Often includes the nature of a given credit or debt and its amount, as well as listing the names of the individuals that hold the debt or credit. Among the names that appear throughout the ledger are Lorenzo and Jacopo Magniano, Lorenzo di Enzo da Gonnella, Giovanni Ridolfo and Filippo Pandolfini. The transactions concern small debts or credits between Andrea Amadori and various counterparts, but payments to professionals (including dyers, bakers and carpenters) for their services are not uncommon. There are also many transactions between Andrea Amadori and his employees: in these cases the former often pays in cash, whereas the latter tend to pay in kind. The names of Filippo Amadori and of Andrea's son, Francesco, also appear throughout the ledger. Together with Andrea Amadori, they act as counterparts for transactions with various employees.
